Hi Tony,

Javascript in james server would be a primeur.
But why not... there is more and more JS "on the other side" (thinking 
to Node.js...). I'm using today Jackson to manipulate JSON in Java, but 
Javascript has a more natural fit, so I understand why you choose it.

We will start around end-May with MAILBOX-44, but there today no 
discussions/decisions on the chosen format to persist mail.

I would say "don't hurry, don't put pressure on you, and keep us updated 
when you think to release it" :)
